Considering all the hype about the black forest cake, we went to try it for ourselves. The staff were rude, and I had to ask 3 times where our order was. The cake was nothing special, Im not the biggest fan of the black forest...More

I was thrilled to stumble across the original Black Forest Cake which was all-the-rage in the 70s. There it was, the original. My expectations were so high. This original recipe had to exceed my Mom's cake, which was outstanding and without alcohol. My slice had...More

This place is famous in Triberg to offer the original recipe of the Black Forest cake (as said). What's the deal of a comercial place not to treat costumers well? The cake itself is good but you can prove it in other places, better taste...More

Cafe Schaefer has a nice selection of cakes for reasonable prices. The Black Forest cake was excellent. The cafe was quiet when we were there and was very nice to sit in. The decor is nice in an old-fashioned way. However this cafe loses a...More
